Robyn wants to contribute to the responsible growth and planning of the Canaveral Port Authority. Port Canaveral led Brevard through a frightening economic recession. The Port continues to excel in job opportunities and economic growth. Robyn would diversify the commission and offer a fresh new voice to sustain the success of the Canaveral Port Authority into the future!
GROWTH: JOBS FOR CITIZENS.
Port Canaveral’s success is embodied by job sector growth in multiple industries: space technology, cargo import/export, commercial fishing, and tourism. The diversity of industries provides a broad spectrum of positions for citizens of varying skill and education levels.
SAFETY: PEACE OF MIND.
A large component of Port Canaveral’s revenue is cruise travel. Every person that boards a cruise ship, whether a local resident or a visiting tourist, deserves the peace of mind of knowing they are safe on their vacation. Port Canaveral should be a leader in cruise safety, coordinating between local and Federal law enforcement authorities to provide the best for all travelers…and ensuring the long term success of the industry.
RECREATION: AFFORDABLE FUN FOR CITIZENS.
Brevard taxpayers contributed their hard earned dollars to the Port until 1986. Today the Port is in a position to give back. Restaurants. Boat ramps. Boat docks. Parks. Bike Trails. The possibilities are endless. The port can and should be a place for Brevard residents to eat and play. It is more than just a pass through for tourists and cargo.
ENVIRONMENT: WHY WE LOVE BREVARD.
The Port is a gateway to the Indian River Lagoon and has a responsibility to protect it. The health of the Indian River Lagoon directly correlates with the health of the community. Port Canaveral must protect the Indian River Lagoon from potential invasive species and must work with the Brevard County Commission, Tallahassee and President Trump to find solutions for sustainable waterways.
INFRASTRUCTURE: PLANNING FOR SUSTAINABILITY
With growth comes planning. Each project must consider the long term life of the project and the community as a whole. Projects and contractors must be vetted for quality and long term commitment to the infrastructure they profit from.
